where can I buy an old copy (printed before 1960) of the Vulgate Bible in Latin?

Your guess is as good as mine. They are not easy to come by, and when you do find them they are in poor shape often and very expensive. I recommend online sources, specifically www.latinvulgate.com and E-Sword.

STM:

Just out of curiosity, why are you looking for one before 1960? For traditional commentary?

Also note this site, where you can go back and forth with the Douay:

and here's one they link to on the above site:

St. Francis Bookshop

I have no idea if that's a reprint of a pre-1960 version :-)

I wanted one before 1960 because I know that the vatican came out with a new Vulgate that you can see on its site thats just about as good as a New American Bible.

Yes, if you want the traditional Vulgate, that is called the Clementine Vulgate. The second link that was given to you for a Vulgate to purchase is indeed the Clementine Vulgate. $70 is a lot of money to spend, though, when you cannot really read Latin well, and there are many online copies of the Vulgate which you can access freely.

The Clementine Vulgate is available online (for free). The Vulgate and the Douay-Rheims version is printed side by side, with a search engine, cross references, etc..
